Rhino,

I take it your in Baton Rouge. Well I am in St. James Parish, a little east of you. I also am having a problem with my boat filling with water while I'm out on the water. I tried to block in the isolation valve on the aerator suction and that does no good. I have never heard of the anchor locker being a problem spot. I will try and put my boat in the water soon and see if this may be my problem also. Please keep us updated if blazer helps you reach a solution.

Here is an easy test to see if it is your anchor lochor drain . Can be done on the trailer . Try this while the boat is somewhat dry , that way there is no doubt where the water came from .
The drain for the anchor locker is a shiny clamshell on the outside of the hull in the front of the bow on the side , usually the right side . Its supposed to be above the water line , some aren't . Find the clamshell and clog it or tape it up . It doe'snt have to be a water tight seal , we're not really looking for water to come out there . Ok , now you can either do this with the plug in or out . Plug in seems to be a bit more satisfying , the bilge pump should come on . Now take a hose and start filling up your anchor locker with water . Keep an eye on it , if your boat is like mine the wires for the trolling motor come out of a 2" hole at the top of the anchor locker . We don't want water getting through that hole , it would ruin the test . If you keep filling up the locker and the water is going somewhere into the bilge the bilge pump sould come . If all this happens you know what the problem is .

Aug 10 Finally got the anchor locker drain resolved . Got the boat back from Larry Tidwell in Pride , La. They got an excelent operation going on over there , a real pleasure to work with . Everybody over there at Larry's shop is real friendly and I know they got alot of work to do but they allways answer the phone and all of your questions .

All of the good word about how Blazer backs up their warranty and stands behind their boats , well I'm not feeling it . Regardless of being a small issue or not this has not been ideal customer service .
